Head of Partnerships

West London Zone is an early intervention charity.  We help children and young people build the relationships and skills they need to get on track Socially, Emotionally and Academically, believing that by targeting these key areas of development we can empower children to fulfil their potential.  We call this “creating SEA change”.

Inspired by the Harlem Children’s Zone in New York to do ‘whatever it takes,’ we co- developed our collective impact model with our community in West London and deliver early intervention, two-year personalised support plans to children and young people who otherwise may slip through the cracks. We recently approved a new 5-year strategy that includes working with more young children and young people, building our evidence base and sharing our learning. 

The Head of Partnerships will lead the strategic development of the West London Zone Delivery Partnership. We are seeking a dynamic individual who will work well in a fast-paced environment. The ideal candidate will have leadership experience in partnership and/or relationship management and must possess the high levels of energy, integrity and creativity that this exciting role demands. Reporting to the Delivery Director, the Head of Partnerships will lead a team of 4 staff, including 2 newly created posts, to achieve performance and growth targets, delivery partner, school and child and parent satisfaction and create the SEA change needed for children and young people in West London.
